Comments - Stand out in our monthly competition! What did you eat? Unique aspects? Parking/transport tips?: 

This exceptionally well appointed Nandos is at the end of one of the main roads in Historic Colchester a small stones throw from the city walls. Parking is a great issue unless your disabled in which case Colchester has more then ample.
Parked at Vineyard gate car park which has a offer for 50p on sunday afternoons but is a bit of a walk.
The store has a good level of music and excellent artwork on walls and lots of pine which is illuminated by the right level of light. I love the long booth under the stairs and the range of seating, though some at the back of the store was a little too close to each other and i had trouble squeezing through. At the back are large patio doors which open up to a paved garden area which seems like it has seating and parasols during the summer and is a nice touch.
Two sauce areas which were both clean though only the front has a beverage machine and there were no forks at this area. The Toilets are upstairs and very light and airy though also very beige and bland.
The chicken was spot on just as I love it with plenty of sauce and well cooked good size sides so we were very happy with dinner and it had a favorable impression on my mate and we were both satisfied at the end.
No one came to check on us during the meal to see if food was ok nor to see if we wanted dessert which is a shame as had decided to get cheesecake if they had. Can recommend this store and the people of east Anglia are evidently well served.
